Kelli Bowden Massage Therapist @ The Club at Snoqualmie Ridge. Was  just diagnosed with medullary thyroid cancer.  Treatment plan is still in the planning stages. Will most likely need surgery and possibly additional treatment modalities such as chemotherapy and or radiation therapy.
Depending on treatment needed I may be unable to work for short periods of time.  My employer does not offer short term disability, and there is no guarantee that with the potential time off needed that my job will be secure.
As the sole breadwinner with 2 special needs children, being off for indeterminant lengths of time with no income will detrimental to my family's well-being .

My neck is still numb no range of motion says the numbing can be permanent sometimes it can take about a yr. to come back.
Still have my drain tube in my neck, pain still killing me.
Also still waiting on results from surgery for treatment.
This is going to be a long recovery.

Got my drain tube out it was under my muscle and pushing on clavicle bone. Very painful but feels better Now that its out. My left side is still numb and no movement just stiff and hurts. So got results from the doctor yesterday it's not genetic. Got all the cancer cells nothing hiding or that she couldn't get to it's spread a little bit but stayed confined to that area of my neck. So it looks like 12 out of the 38 lymph nodes had cancer. Not to bad. So looks like I caught it when I did!!! Very awesome news!!!!! Now I have to wait a little longer before I can do blood work to see what my numbers are
To see how much chemo is needed hopefully none but usually you do but won't know until then. Dr. Said I probably won't need radiation. Been very lucky with this cancer. Very blessed all your prayers were heard and I thank you all so much because this could of been way worse!!! Everyone remember be aware of your body go to dr. If you feel something anywhere on your body if something feels weird something out of the norm. Go to the dr. It might not be anything better to be safe the sorry get your physicals ck ups blood work ext. sooner you catch it the less hell and sickness you will have to overcome God bless love you stay healthy!!!
